Prayer of the Day Prayer to Father Emil Kapaun

Prayer to Father Emil Kapaun 

Father Emil Kapaun gave 
glory to God by following 
his call to the priesthood and 
thus serving the people of Kansas 
and those in the military. 
Father Kapaun, I ask your 
intercession not only for these needs 
which I mention now 
but that I 
too may follow your example of 
service to God and my neighbor. 
For the gifts of courage in battle 
and perseverance of faith, 
we give you thanks O Lord. 

Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, 
and one Glory Be.

Priest, soldier and friend – pray for us.
